Why it's important to have fun at your wedding

Wedding photography has always been a work of passion for me. I’ve lived and breathed this profession for a good while now. And you know what I’ve learned in that time? The weddings I’ve captured where the couples are having a blast are the weddings that remind me why I love being a Nova Scotia wedding photographer!

And weddings should be a blast! This is one of the happiest days in a couple’s life. But, I’ve seen how quickly that can turn, too. A lot of work goes into a good wedding, I know that. And I know that even if one thing goes wrong, it can have the tendency to throw the whole day off! Don’t let it! 

Instead…

Have FUN at Your Wedding!

Shrug your shoulders, you don’t care! Nothing can ruin the day because it’s YOUR day. With a go-with-the-flow attitude, you’d be surprised how much stress you can conquer. And this attitude will definitely shine through in your wedding photos as well!

When you think about your wedding, it’s so important to realize that this day summarizes and highlights who you are to your friends, family and even the world! Though embracing the traditional mantlepiece images for some might make sense, wouldn’t you rather have fun in your photos? Wouldn’t you rather embrace the silly, wild side of your personality?! 

I've been lucky enough to be featured in some pretty amazing places. And, I’ve shot over 120 weddings all over Nova Scotia. My point being: I’ve taken a lot of photographs. Wedding photos might be some of the most important photos you take in your adult life. These are the images your future children, and even future grandchildren will know you by. Take the time to do your story justice! But don't just take it from me…

Check out these fun images and fun couples embracing their Big Day! Maybe its the Nova Scotia in me, but at the end of the day, we don’t take anything too seriously around here, and neither should you!
